Obama Administration: I Guess Now That We Gave You Wingnuts 1200 National Guardsmen It's Time To Challenge Arizona's Law In Court

I nailed it. Hey, that's not me saying that, that's Gateway Pundit, and as Will Folks can tell ya, It ain't braggin' if it's true.

What I didn't nail is that they'd be so shamelessly obvious in the timing. I thought they'd at least give it a couple of weeks.

A team of Justice Department attorneys reviewing the new immigration law in Arizona has recommended that the U.S. government challenge the state law in federal court, but the recommendation faces an uncertain future and tough scrutiny from others in the Justice Department, sources with knowledge of the process tell Fox News.

Staff attorneys within the Justice Department recently sent higher-ups the recommendation. At the same time, the Justice Department’s Civil Division, which oversees the majority of immigration enforcement issues for the department, has drafted a “civil complaint” that would be filed in federal court in Arizona, sources said.

The draft complaint challenges the Arizona law as unconstitutional, saying it is illegal because it impedes federal law, according to the sources, who would not offer any more details about the draft complaint or the arguments made in it.

Wow, like I so totally didn't know you were going to do that.

The troops are not being deployed to the border to stop the river of illegals flowing in, but solely to stanch the bleeding in Obama's poll numbers. They know they need some cover for their next wildly-unpopular move.
